Materials Needed

-Hot Glue Gun & Hot Glue Sticks
-Washable Marker

Note about Headband:

I have included instructions for attaching the ears to headbands for the longer ears. I’m using the Goody brand Girls Classic Fabric Headband. These are great and come in cute pastel colours that work well with the ears, but they don’t stay on as well as the headbands with “teeth” (especially for the longer ears). If you plan to wear your headband out to a party or to a theme park (or if you have a smaller head), you might want to get headbands that stay on a bit better.

Note about Craft Wire + Glue:

You will need to use some craft wire to prop up the ears. The ears will not stay up or be poseable without the wires.

I also find that hot glue gun glue adheres very well to fabric headbands and dries quickly, so it’s the best option for attaching the wires to the headbands. You can use E6000 as well, but I don’t’ recommend it because the drying time is much longer and you’ll have to hold it in place while the glue sets.
